  • Rods and cones, the photoreceptors of the retina, process light and relay an electrical signal to downstream cells.
  • One of these cell types, retinal ganglion cells (RGCs), transmit the signal to the visual cortex.
  • The visual cortex is the part of the brain where vision is perceived.

Damage from Retinitis Pigmentosa

  • Retinitis Pigmentosa (RP) results in progressive degeneration and loss of function of rods and cones.
  • This causes continuous impairment of vision that often leads to blindness.
  • Importantly, in RP and other inherited retinal diseases, the RGCs remain viable.
